Around the world, COVID-19 is leading many staff to work from home.
Many workplaces here in Australia are already gearing up their staff for the likely event that workers are required to work from home for an extended period of time.
As part of this process, workplaces are ensuring staff undertake the relevant training and set up their home environment to optimise their workstation ergonomics.
We at Pinnacle, are helping them along the way.
Working from Home Ergonomic Training Package
3 modules, each up to 10 minutes in duration.
Please note that the videos below are short excerpts taken from each of the 3 modules.
Module 1: Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) when working at home on your computer
This module covers information about MSDs relevant to working from home, along with strategies you can use to reduce your risk of injury. It includes the common areas of your body which can become injured, why back pain is so prevalent, spinal anatomy, how injuries can ‘creep’ up on us and ways that you can be proactive to reduce your risk of injury.
Module 2: Working from Home – Workstation Setup
This module takes a closer look at the guidelines you should use to set up your workstation in order to minimise your risk of injury. It includes how to set up your chair, monitor, keyboard, mouse, document position and telephone, as well as covering some tips on changing your posture and performing stretches throughout the day.
Module 3: Stretches
This module provides guidance on how to reduce the risk of injury by performing stretches and exercises throughout the day. Stretches for the neck, shoulders, forearms and hands, legs and lower back are covered, with guidance on general stretching rules, how long to hold the stretch and how frequently to perform them.
